Here are a few excerpts from that story:
So you’re a General Manager and you get a call from a local medical marijuana dispensary with a 13 week order. Would you take the revenue if you got the call? Ads are being run on Greater Media’s WBOS-FM in Boston according to the Boston Herald. Mike Fitzgerald is the founder of the New England Grass Roots Institute. His radio ads state the following, according to the Boston Herald: “This all-natural herb can be infused into almost any food or beverage. Used properly, medical marijuana adds to a healthy lifestyle. Medical Marijauna: Is it right for you? Talk to your doctor, then talk to us.”
Wayne Sampson, executive director of the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association, told the Herald, this presents a challenge for for law enforcement. “It certainly doesn’t seem that if this was truly a medical issue that they would have to be advertising for clients. This is purely a commercial operation.”
Would you, should you take the ads? Let us know below.

Based on the numerous ads we see for new prescription drugs on TV each day, Wayne Sampson’s argument that “It certainly doesn’t seem that if this was truly a medical issue that they would have to be advertising for clients,” seems a little bit ridiculous. Just sayin’.
